[image]George Washington - Charles Willson Peale
John Hancock, president of the Continental Congress, commissioned this portrait of George Washington as Commander in Chief of the Continental Army in order to flatter and reward him for liberating Boston (visible in the background) from the British in March 1776. Hancock wrote to Washington, "I beg, Sir, you will be pleased to accept my heartfelt thanks for the attention you have showed to my property in that town." Washington reluctantly accepted Hancock's invitation to sit for the Philadelphia...

[image]Nude Woman Drying Herself (Femme au Tub) - Edgar Degas
Embracing the Impressionist credo of painting modern life, Degas concentrated on the daily rituals of urban dwellers. In this image, typical of his bather scenes, Degas captures his subject from behind and in motion as she vigorously towels herself after a bath. Bright light pours in from the window, highlighting her left breast but otherwise casting her body in shadow and limiting clear definition of both facial and bodily features...

[image]Scholar Contemplating a Cascade - Yi Chong
The sixteenth-century ink-wash painting, a type rarely found outside Korean collections, uses strong, deliberate brushwork to convey ideas of space and perspective. Yi Chong, a Buddhist monk who came from a renowned family of artists, was a respected court painted during his short life. His work was heavily influenced by the Chinese tradition of the scholar-artist. The style of this painting invokes the Zhe School of Ming dynasty China, and the subject alludes to a poem by the Chinese poet Li Bo...

[image]Atahualpa, Fourteenth Inca, 1 of 14 Portraits of Inca Kings
Throughout the embattled environment of the colonial Americas—above and below the equator—portraits served as potent symbols of political and social power. The Brooklyn Museum's strong holdings of Spanish colonial art afford an unusual opportunity to study American colonial portraiture on the broadest possible level. Portraits of the historical kings of the Inca dynasty of Peru—including this eighteenth-century example—were a type that originated in the context of the vying powers of nat...

[image]Italian Sketchbook - Sanford Robinson Gifford
Renowned as one of the leading painters of the Hudson River School of landscape artists, Sanford Gifford was also a talented draftsman, as evidenced by this drawing of Santa Catarina, a centuries-old church built into the cliffs on the eastern shore of Lake Maggiore in northern Italy. He fully exploited the pencil medium, using the point to outline the building's dramatic profile and the surrounding topography, and then making hatchings and rubbings to create the timeworn surfaces of the walls.

[image]Study for Prayer for Death in the Desert - Elihu Vedder
Drawing was a vitally important practice for the artist Elihu Vedder, who ultimately was best known for his work as an illustrator. His preparatory works have a distinctive substantiality and force, owing to his skill in employing expressive, heavy outlines and dramatic contrasts of light and dark. Achieving these effects in his preliminary drawings through the use of charcoal and chalks (rather than the more restrained medium of pencil), Vedder sought a similar visual effect in his finished pai...

[image]Forest at Fontainebleau - Antoine-Louis Barye
Known primarily as a sculptor of predatory encounters between animal species, Barye also painted the varied landscape of the Fontainebleau Forest in a number of oil studies. Here he depicts the gorge of either Apremont or Franchard, both of which are characterized by rugged rock formations. Barye’s deliberately coarse handling of his medium provides a tactility of surface evocative of the landscape itself...

[image]Gourds - John Singer Sargent
In 1909, the Brooklyn Museum made a prescient purchase of a cache of Sargent watercolors on exhibition at the prestigious New York gallery M. Knoedler & Company. Prior to this exhibition, Sargent was known primarily for his oil portraits, but as Americans gained familiarity with his watercolors the public quickly developed an appreciation for this work. Today, the artist is considered one of America's greatest masters of the medium, along with Winslow Homer...

Harpignies takes a stand of willow trees as his subject for this sketch, focusing on their distinctive squat trunks and spindly branches, which he traces with long, linear brushstrokes. In contrast to the wispy tree limbs, the pillowy clouds and green foliage are painted thickly in white, yellow, and green.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object record for the latest information.

[image]Nude with Apple - William Glackens
Is this a modern Eve about to take a bite of the apple? William Glackens certainly counted on his viewers to make that association. Moreover, he offered a fresh American update on the subject of the nude studio model, paraphrasing one of France's most famous paintings, Edouard Manet's Olympia.Object metadata can change over time, please check the Brooklyn Museum object record for the latest information.

[image]The Bathers - William Etty
Best known for allegorical and mythological scenes that allowed him to demonstrate his great facility for rendering the nude figure, Etty here offers a subject that is more informal in tone if not in finish. Three female bathers gather around a boat moored on a riverbank, while a fourth clothed figure sits inside the barge. Etty painted several such scenes of summertime bathing during his career, most frequently calling on the landscape of the countryside of his native York, England.Object metad...

[image]On the River - Bertha Lum
Bertha Lum's engagement with Japonisme was more intense than that of many of her American contemporaries. She embraced not only Japanese subjects and aesthetics but also Japanese techniques of color woodblock printing, which she learned during extended stays in the country. Traditionally, Japanese prints were made by three specialized craftsmen: an artist drew the picture, a carver transferred the image to the woodblocks, and a printer inked the blocks and produced the finished work...

[image]Running Stream at San Cosimato - Jean-Joseph-Xavier Bidauld
Bidauld earned a place among the pioneers of openair painting with a five-year stint working in the hidden corners of the Italian countryside during the 1780s. Rivers and streams offered an opportunity to study the contrast between the rough-edged rocks lining riverbeds and those worn smooth by centuries of running waters. These subjects posed a favorite challenge: capturing the constant motion of powerfully churning rapids and delicately swirling eddies...

[image]The Elder Sister, reduction (La soeur aînée, réduction) - William Bouguereau
An academic painter who had achieved great success in the Paris Salon with mythological, historical, and religious subjects, Bouguereau later turned to genre scenes such as this image of a young woman caring for her younger brother. Although the figures are defined as siblings in the title, Bouguereau evokes the Madonna and Child with a tender pose—much like that seen in the altarpieces on the opposite wall—and the Catholic rosary beads in the child’s hand...

[image]The Moorish Warrior - William Merritt Chase
In all likelihood, the scimitar examined by the powerful black man shown here belonged to the artist. Indeed, what we see is a model posing among William Merritt Chase's carefully arranged studio props. This is probably the painting that Chase was completing in Venice for a German client immediately before he returned to the United States. One of the most ambitious undertakings of his early career, The Moorish Warrior demonstrates Chase's desire to participate in the international trend for exot...

[image]Battle of Karbala - Abbas Al-Musavi
This painting commemorates the martyrdom of Imam Husayn, the grandson of the prophet Muhammad and the third imam, or leader, of the Shiʿa Muslims. Husayn was killed by the forces of the Umayyad caliph Yazid I (r. 680–683) in the desert of Karbala in central Iraq in 680 c.e. This battle emphasizes the divide between the Sunni and Shiʿa branches of Islam; Husayn led a resistance against what the Shiʿa Muslims believed was the Umayyads’ illegitimate rule...

[image]On the Way between Old and New Cairo, Citadel Mosque of Mohammed Ali, and Tombs of the Mamelukes - Louis Comfort Tiffany
Louis Comfort Tiffany's beginnings as a painter have been overshadowed by his stunning achievements as a decorator and stained-glass designer. Yet this early work, which records the scene in terms of colored light filtering through veils of blowing sand, reveals a sensitivity to luminous colors that would also characterize his later pursuits in other media. Although Tiffany's orientalist paintings were studio productions, they grew mainly from his own observations of places he had visited (he we...

[image]Sunday on the Beach - Maurice Brazil Prendergast
Maurice Prendergast was one of the first Americans to use watercolor in a modernist manner, allowing passages of unpainted paper to play a role in the description of summarily described forms. Prendergast’s style and his subjects were largely inspired by the French Post-Impressionist art he had encountered as a student in Paris in the early 1890s. His best-known theme was the modern pursuit of leisure by the middle classes, in parks and at beaches like this one near Boston.Object metadata can ...

Homer investigated the subject of the American country school in a series of paintings and engravings beginning in the 1870s. His focus on the theme occurred at a crucial time of reform in American education, when teaching duties were taken over largely by women who were professionally trained, disciplinary tactics were modified, and new teaching methods reflected the belief in children’s ability to learn in a sympathetic environment...
